Monday so far

I turned off the computer around 11:30 p.m. and went to bed around 1:00 a.m.  I don't think it took me very long to get to sleep.  I woke up at 9:50 a.m., which wasn't bad.

I went to get another blood test, this time a fasting one.  The phlebotomist looked at the veins on the insides of my elbows, and the bruises still there, while I said, "It's probably better to take the blood from a vein on my hand."  So she did.

I have an appointment today.  I may go to the YMCA afterwards to walk on the treadmill a little bit.  I can't get the bandage wet, so no swimming.

A few hours later: I made it to the appointment.  Dad and I dropped my car off at Firestone for an inspection, then went to a grocery store.

Later: My car passed inspection.  I am very happy.

Later still: I started a Musketeers rewatch.  There were things from the first episode I appreciated much better after seeing the whole season.

I chatted with WhiteSheepCBD for a while.  I explained that Neyron rose was kind of a play on words, to my way of thinking.  The 'Paul Neyron' rose was so popular in Victorian times that there was a color called "Neyron pink."  And "pink" in French is "rose."  So there's a rose/pink meaning, too.  I said I was fine being called 'Rose.

I talk about various things here and on Tumblr.  I don't have different identities for different subjects.  I expected to talk about gardening and romance novels and Glee on Tumblr.  I reblog some of Weeds' posts.  I'm not sure how I ended up talking about race on Tumblr every so often, except that I follow some social justice people.  I quote biyuti, penroseparticle and black-john-lennon now and then, though penroseparticle is more often posting about comic books.   I don't have a "race" tag, because I feel that would be presumptuous.  I think I have an "AAVE" tag, though.  I should make an AAVE tag for here, too, except there are so many years I'd have to go through if I wanted to tag earlier entries.
